Plan With Me – Five Routines for Your Happy Planner

Thanks for POPping over…

My name is Laurie, and I make YouTube videos about Ideas That POP into my head – travel ideas, home ideas, makeup ideas that POP into my head.

Today, we’re “Happily” Planning April.  In my Happy Planner I’m decorating April. I’m still in love with my Happy Planner  – Create 365 – Mambi Planner – Me & My Big Ideas Planner.  In this video you will Plan With Me and see my 5 Routines for Each New Month in My Happy Planner.  

***How do you plan-with your laptop calendar or your small phone calendar?  Let me know in the comments.

I’m going through my washi and stickers because I’m trying to match the washi and stickers for this month.  For now I have time to think about that.  If you see my other video about Changes I Made to My Happy Planner, you’ll see that everything does NOT have to match.

Five Routines for a New Month

To ease your stress, I’ve created five things to put on your to-do list that you will do at the end of every single month.  Experience a stress-free , seamless transition to the next month.  In the video above, I walk you through those five routines.

What I loved:

If y’all haven’t tried a hard cover before, I highly recommend this one.  I feel like it protects my pages better.  And I LOVE the aqua color.  Super easy to change out the covers.

Favorites From March – I never knew…

Never have I tried the yellow bottle and now this bottle from Gold Bond.  Our family is LOVING this Gold Bond for Diabetics lotion.  The YouTube video will show you how thick it is.

I finally found a concealer that doesn’t crack after hours and feels light as a feather.  You can see my application in the YouTube video above.  I use this angled brush and set it with this very wispy $5 brush and powder by Naked Cosmetics.

Finished in 3 days!  It was a brilliant, intellectual love story that was so well written.

Smelling good and feeling good about the products was a long time coming.  I’m so glad I found this deodorant.  Their correspondence is so clever!

Do you use spray deodorant or a stick?  Gel or solid?  Do you have a natural one you like?

Loft Haul – Spring 2017

Gotta watch the above vid for these pictures to come alive!

Ann Taylor Loft Haul – Ann Taylor Loft Sale

Loved my shopping haul at Ann Taylor Loft today!  I must say that I was so surprised with their Spring fabrics and color patterns for 2017.

First Loft item was on sale: I found these cute Breezy Floral Riviera shorts on sale with an extra 40% off to make them only $26.  That price means they’re still around and will be on sale for a while.  These have a 4″ inseam which is conservative on my 5’8″ legs.

Are y’all shopping for Spring Clothing pieces this Spring yet?  POP over to my friend Addy B’s channel and check out her preteen Spring outfit ideas.  Addy is one of the most creative people I know.  I love how she expresses herself creatively.  Give her a looksy!

I tried the mustard tank because I can usually rock the color mustard.  Even though it’ll never be Pantone’s Color of the Year, I’m loving it.  I love how the tank under this hangs snugly and looks like it has a tiny tiny bit of sheen poking through this sewing detail.  The top fits TTS and especially in the back.  No clinging in my normal size Medium.  I’m 5’8” and wear a 10 or 8 at Loft.

At Loft it helps to shop smart.  Today, I only needed to spend $50 to get $25 Loft Cash.  Since the gorgeous mustard top was $54, I decided to wait and buy it once it goes on a better sale.

Grabbed this bright coral red tee in the color Wildfire Red.  I have raved about their Vintage Soft tees for months.  I have white, off white, gray with pink polka dots and a long sleeved white one!

I ended up getting a Large because I like the length.  The Medium fits my curves a little better, but this will do-especially at $18.  Bright red goes with my winter clothes-dark teal, navy cardigan, denim colors and white.   That’s also another reason I didn’t mind spending $18.

Look how good it goes with these deep beauty colors in these shorts.

I found this beauty on Final Sale at Loft.  I’m still bitter that they don’t give you an extra 40% off the final sale anymore.  It fits perfectly TTS.  Check out the detailing, and this little bit of pucker right here gives it a shape AND keeps it from clinging in the back.  The draping of this will be perfect for a good pair of shorts or capris to carry you into spring.

I splurged at $18 to get this pineapple tee.  I like the scoop neck slash v-neck more than just scoop neck.  Pineapples scream summer, and they say Welcome as well as, “Stand tall.  Wear a crown.  Be sweet on the inside.”

I alMOST bought these gorgeous pants. Sunny and pure yellow!

img_1066These would be awesome work pants and would go with every.color.out.there.  But they were $70.  But they were 30% off, which would be an extra $21 off.  But, if I have my Loft Cash of $25, that’s more of a discount to me.  Also, the 10 was really roomy; it would work especially if I was going to eat out or be on vacation a few days and needed some fuller pants.  So I tried on the 10 Petite in white, and it was BEAUTIFUL!!!  But they’re see through.  The fit was wonderful.  And the fabric is oh. so. luxe.  Smooth but textured a tad. 

Love this flowy shell tank because it’s a bright teal.  But I did not spend the money because the hem came up to high on the sides.  I want to be able to raise my hands and say, “Go team” and not worry about my tummy spare tires showing.  And that’s not worth $44 with 30% off any time of day.

One movement by Loft last Fall which seemed manipulative, is during the Loft Cash time, nothing was full price.  And with Loft Cash, you can only use it on full price clothing. 

My favorite piece of all is this Velvet Split Neck Shell.  It’s so soft and shiny but see through.  It looks great with a dark gray tank under.
